    Thanks, I am a sucker for special editions.

  • +9

    Why not that translucent green that the original Xbox controller was available in?

    • +3

      I dream of an Xbox Series X like the PS4 500 Million edition but in that green.

      • I thought that was the Xbox One X with the Scorp edition. I know it was not a legit see through but on the right track.

  • is there an actual buy link anywhere? seems to not be out yet?

    • +2

      The link attatched, click pre-order and it will allow you

    good timing to use HN lattitude pay 70$ Microsoft card

    • Could you please provide a link to the gift card? I can't find it.

      Thanks

    • +5

      how does one get 10% gift cards? 👀

  • +6

    Should make a wireless Duke for the 20th anniversary.

    • +3

      Oh please don't, that thing was hideous. Its was a really crappy part of Xbox history as well. They had to settle on that disappointing design as they wanted to copy Sony's stacked board design but couldn't do it as one of Sony's japanese suppliers flat out denied them.

      I can't bring myself to do the wired, but wireless would be awesome. I still love the size but the black/white buttons vs dual triggers kills usability

      • Can't help with the fact that they're wired, but the modern Duke controllers do have shoulder buttons (LB and RB) in addition to the black/white buttons. I believe they're mapped to be the same inputs by default, but you could potentially change that like you can with the share button.

    • +1

      I think they might be in 2022, they shipped a Duke with the Adidas x Xbox family & friends package for the new Forum collab

  • Other than appearance, are there any features which are different to a regular xbox controller?

    • +7

      It's the same as any Xbox Series controller.

      That in itself is an upgrade from any Xbox One controller.

      • +1

        Doesn't feel like an upgrade to me, the dpad is stupidly loud and the textured grip feels horrible, especially if you have clammy hands.
        360 controller still the best.

        • +1

          i love the 360 controller but after longer sessions for some reason the left thumbstick sheds a lot of little black shavings…

        • I am looking to buy my first controller ever (for Rocket League primarily), would you suggest going for a 360 controller?

  • +3

    20yrs?
    Wow I feel old now

  • you can preorder at JB now

  • +10

    Don't be a shelf collector.
    Don't succumb to FOMO.

    • -3

      Don't tell people what to do with their money.

  • I've already got both elite controllers. I don't need this right?

    • +3

      Need? Likely not. Want? Probably…

      • Want? Probably…

        Yeah. I do have around $50 worth of those bing points too

    • +2

      Both? there are at least 4 i can think of
      S1 Elite Standard (black)
      S1 Elite White
      S2 Elite Standard (black)
      S2 Elite Halo

      • +1

        And the Gears of War 4 (red) elite controller.

        • Ahh yes!! You are correct

  • Title says $99, but it’s $99.95 from the MS Store.

  • +1

    Wow, not sold out already. Preordered two from MS and one from JB. One is mine and the other are gifts.

    Cheers OP.

  • +2

    It's now on Amazon also.

  • Can this be used as a wired controller with a Windows 10 PC?

    • +2

      Yes it can. You can also use it wirelessly via Bluetooth or the Xbox wireless adapter.

  • +2

    Wonder how many of these will just end up sitting brand new in their boxes on peoples shelves.

    • +3

      A lot! That's what I love about the standard xbox controllers, no inbuilt batteries. No need to worry about the battery dying out.

  • Honestly I 'd rather get the Forza one.
    Oh Forza is sold out. Yesterday was still available at JB.

    • +1

      I wasn't in the market for a new controller, but I want that one now you made me look.

      • +2

        I was never in that market. And look at what I've got on hand and upcomings.i am hopless. By the way the Forza is sold out everywhere apart from mighty ape. If you want that.

        • Thanks for the heads up, I got one from there- will just enhance the Forzathon next month when I finally get it. Now OOS but my order has been confirmed, I hope it's ok.

    • Oh god I want one now, too

      • I think it's sold out everywhere now. since that's a limited edition ( this is special edition), have no idea whether they will be restocked any time soon.

    • I got it from EB. Missed out on the Space Jam controller, so got this instead back then.

      EB restocked Space Jam last week, so got that too.

      Now EB has this 20th one on $64 with a controller trade in, so will get this as well.

      • Lol, looks like you can not help yourself too, like me.

        • I know 😂

          Didn't get to level 5 by accident now, did we?

          I get the good looking ones though. For all that's worth.

  • +1

    Also available at EB Games now

  • +2

    i prefer the understatedness of this 20th ann version

  • How much will it be worth in ten years

    • +8

      EB will give you $3.80 + EB World Card % bonus

      • Lol you give them too much credit.

  • +1

    Just preordered with EB for the trade in offer https://twitter.com/EBGamesAus/status/1446252772693880833/ph...

    $64 when you trade in an xbox controller

    • How did you trade in your old one?

      • +2

        You can pay the $10 deposit and then take your controller in any day before release, they will adjust the owing amount on your account.

        • Okay. Thanks.

          • +1

            @albert0pia: Local store is only open for C&C at the moment so I placed my order over the phone and paid the $10 deposit.

    • +1

      Great thanks. I got an old Xbox one s controller that I don't know what to do with at home for about 2 years.

      Prefer to have this brand new baby sitting in the box on the shelf.

    • Is this open to Xbox One controllers?? If so I'm down. If only XSX controllers, no deal :(

      • Any official Xbox One/Series controller.

  • Just get it off Amazon. Theres a price promise and they could order 30 if you wanted to…

    • Yeah, why not, this month I had Zelda joycons, 8bitdo pro2, and now Xbox controller. Would be good to have 20 years controller sit with halo X. God, who knows why I am keep buying these and not even play that much games. Not really a true Xbox fanboy. Good thing I like Amazon is easy to cancel.

    • Not showing up when i search for it.

      • Amazon is presold out.

  • How many controllers do we need? Wish I have more than 1 pair of hands.

    • What about couch multiplayer?

  • +2

    The green on the back of the controller is HORRENDOUS! If that was black, I'd be very interested but that bright green grip on the back looks tacky as hell.

    • They just want to add some green. Maybe healthier. Lol

      • Less is more imo, the splash of Green on the front is great, maybe they could of put a tiny bit of green somewhere else on the front if they wanted more but keep the stylish simplicity. To just throw massive bright green grips on the back turned it from being sleek to ugly. But each to their own, I'm sure some people out there love it.

    • To each their own. I personally prefer the green on the back and green is the official xbox colour.

  • Ordered with a rechargeable battery pack. Thanks OP.

    Another random Friday, another Xbox limited edition/special/different colour controller… It's comical at this point.
